He will come out tomorrow and say he captured and killed the Earthquake just like he captured and killed Osama.  The earthquake is now at the bottom of the Atlantic.

At least he's setting his priorities and improves what needs to be improved because after this presidency, those golf skills will come in mighty handy for his new bank lobby job.

Why are you sure he wants to reverse it? Have you seen him lately? I think the people who will be most relieved to see the end of the Obama era will be the Obamas themselves, once they get through this, if they do, it is a watermellon fried chicken heaven kind of a life for them! Yass sir, that Boy done got it made!

Forget approval ratings that are a year and more from the election.

Shoshana Cardin's descendants, apostles, disciples, and other hangers on will see to it that theBamster gets another 4 years.   Hillary sycophants will have to wait until 2012. 

The details of how that will happen do not matter. 

Just take the Intrade bet now at at 50/50 when it drops to 80/20 against him being re-elected.  You will make money when he....ahem...wins.

Doesn't f*ckin' matter what his approval rate is TPTB will just get one of their other shills to promise to do the right thing and the sheeple will buy it, and the perry/bachmann/romney or democratic primary challenger will be part of the same machine promising 'change you can believe in'. The time for ballot box measures are ending and will soon rely on the ammo box for real 'change we can believe in'.

I'm surprised Obama's approvals are even this high. But anything under 45 and he's losing power. Without the crippled-baby-in-a-wheelchair, affirmative action, treatment by the MSM he'd have already have been down to 25% approval a long time ago.


And, Rasmussen (likely voters) has his approval gap at a record negative (-) 26 pts., which means there is 26 point gap between the people who really love him and the people who really hate him.

you look into that number a bit and you see how bad it is.  45% *strongly* disapprove.  At this particular point, a dead dog could beat him.  Rasmussen polls LVs, not the general public, and his results typically bullseye.

A 45% strong disapproval is nearly an electoral loss in and of itself.  A couple more percentage points and you cannot win.  Busch towards the end of his reign had ratings in the -30s, which is spitting distance away from here.  Some of the ethnic data is suggesting all time low support among hispanics.  Obama appears to only have the worst of the YT guilt crowd libtards and the black bloc going for him as strongly favorable right now.  Gallup has him at nearly 90% approval rating from blacks.  32% whites, 44% hispanics.  Gee, which group is out of touch?

There simply can be no common ground and several people here need to wake the fuck up.

Trav..... agree.  Rasmussen is the only one I regularly keep up with, have his site bookmarked. Obama is toast. Even if something awful and dramatic were to happen, he's the last person people would want to rally around to feel safe. As you say, he is even eating into his hardcore base which is destoying his party. Sooner the better.
